I finally found it. After waiting in line for a shitload of time after buying KBS, they had CBS! it tastes very similar to KBS, but more bitter, creamy, and thick.

Founders Brewery, Grand Rapids, MI, draft. Today is CBS release day. It's near hysteria. Can understand why. Impossibly smooth. Like a fine bourbon, but with soft bosoms instead of a harsh bite. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: this beer is super black even at the corners, didn't have any head when it arrived Aroma: strong alcohol but not overwhelming the maple and coffee aromas, Taste: coffee, maple, sweet, alcohol spice, Palate: thick mouthfeel, alcohol aftertaste, average carbonation Overall: this is really good despite me usually not liking too much alcohol notes, the maple sweetness is strong ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Oak St. Dark mahogany pour with a thin tan head. Oily lacing. Aroma is maple syrup, milk chocolate, roast, coffee, smoke, and bourbon. Taste follows the nose with an initial maple, chocolate, and vanilla sweetness that fades into coffee, bourbon, and smoky notes with some boozy warmth. Layers of flavor. Slick palate. Pretty fantastic.

Cybercat (3768) - Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2015 Pours opaque coffee brown with a nice tan head. Rich aroma has firm notes of bourbon, coffee, molasses and toast malt plus a hint of chocolate. Flavor floods the palate with quality coffee, bourbon, chocolate, molasses, roast malt and oak. Mouthfeel is quite fizzy and firm, leaving a bourbon and chocolaty finish. Oh Canada, my home and native land!

Draft. Black with no head. Aroma and taste are pretty identical. Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, oaky vanilla and a glorious heaping dose of maple syrup. The beer is incredibly sweet but itís never cloying. Every element is in perfect harmony. Mouthfeel is sticky and syrupy but not overly thick. Almost airy in a way. No alcohol present. I was honestly skeptical going into this beer. I didnít think there was any way it could live up to the hype. To me, this is almost perfect. Itís hard for me to imagine a better barrel aged stout.
